Between Obama and the morons at the U.N., no wonder Iran is doing cartwheels.
From Fox News.
Capitol Hill opposition to the Iranian nuclear deal was stoked Wednesday by a bombshell report that Tehran will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect one of the country’s most controversial nuclear sites.
“Allowing the Iranians to inspect their own nuclear sites, particularly a notorious military site, is like allowing the inmates to run the jail,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a presidential candidate, said in a statement.
……in an unusual and secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, Iran can use its own experts and equipment in the search for evidence for activities that it has consistently denied — trying to develop nuclear weapons.
At issue is an investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Iran has refused access to Parchin for years and denied any interest in — or work on — nuclear weapons. Based on U.S., Israeli and other intelligence and its own research, the IAEA suspects that the Islamic Republic may have experimented with high-explosive detonators for nuclear arms at that military facility and other weapons-related work elsewhere.
The IAEA has repeatedly cited evidence, based on satellite images, of possible attempts to sanitize the site since the alleged work stopped more than a decade ago.
And yet they permit the muzzie shitbags to monitor themselves. Just. Fucking. Brilliant.
……instead of carrying out their own probe, IAEA staff will be reduced to monitoring Iranian personnel as they inspect the Parchin site.
That deal is a side agreement worked out between the IAEA and Iran, separate from the nuclear deal now before Congress for approval. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said the revelation only “reinforces” concerns about the broader agreement.
“Trusting Iran to inspect its own nuclear site and report to the U.N. in an open and transparent way is remarkably naïve and incredibly reckless,” he said in a statement. “It is time for the Obama Administration to come clean with the American people and provide all information about these secret side agreements between Iran and the IAEA.”
The Obama regime spins the usual shit:
……”We are confident in the Agency’s technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran’s former program, issues that in some cases date back more than a decade,” National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said. “Just as importantly, the IAEA is comfortable with arrangements, which are unique to the Agency’s investigation of Iran’s historical activities. When it comes to monitoring Iran’s behavior going forward, the IAEA has separately developed the most robust inspection regime ever peacefully negotiated to ensure Iran’s current program remains exclusively peaceful…
“Beyond that, we are not going to comment on a purported draft IAEA document.”
State Department spokesman John Kirby also said they are “confident in the agency’s technical plans for investigating the possible military dimensions of Iran’s former program” and the IAEA is “comfortable” with the arrangements as well.
Some of the blame for this can be put on the RINOs in Congress who channeled their inner Mitch McConnell and offered a half-assed response that helped Obama circumvent constitutional Checks and Balances.
In the wake of Obama’s ‘deal’, Iran immediately violated the terms and sent Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani to Russia for a meeting with Vlad Putin. Furthermore, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei announced that they will “trample America” and their policy of aggression hasn’t changed.
Iran already has nuclear weapons capability due to decades of failure by the West to stop them. It will still race toward building a nuclear bomb, threaten Israel, and export terrorism, regardless of Obama’s placating.
The motivation for these ‘deals’ is nothing less than pro-Islamofascist. Why else would they give a belligerent, Islamic terrorist nation-state the green light to make WMDs?
It’s asinine. It’s insane. It’s suicidal. And you can thank Barky and the U.N. when Iran lobs a nuke at Tel Aviv.
